About the Topic


" Two Sides to the Same Coin............? " Overview

Billions of dollars have been spent on securing the perimeter of our corporations.  Yet we live in a world of disappearing

perimeters with the internet becoming ubiquitous in the way we communicate and drive commerce.  The

"bad guys" have figured this out,  with American Identity Theft alone costing consumers $45B per year yet we do not

monitor the internet


About the Speaker


John Schuller, Regional Sales Manager, BrandProtect. 


As new business development lead, John is responsible for identifying, qualifying, and managing new business opportunities for BrandProtect, the division of Brandimensions Inc. which is involved primarily with helping organizations manage and mitigate misuse and abuse of their brands online. 


John has extensive experience in new business development and client relationship management.  Since joining Brandimensions nearly five years ago, he has been involved in Internet-based brand protection.  He works cross-industry in the United States and Canada, most notably with financial institutions, but in a variety of other industries as well including insurance, retail, pharmaceuticals, and the public sector.


John recently implemented a phishing management and mitigation program for several members of the Inter-University Council of Ohio.  He was responsible for developing the initial brand protection pilot program on behalf of the Vancouver Olympic Organizing Committee (VANOC).  The success of that initial program led to a long-term relationship with VANOC in which BrandProtect has responsibility for monitoring all online abuses involving the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games.  He has also developed and managed relationships with some of the largest organizations in North America, including Whirlpool Corporation, Comcast, PNC Financial Services, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).


John is an active member in the Sales and Marketing Association of Cleveland and the Community Bankers Association of Ohio.  He serves as a guest speaker on the topics of phishing and Internet brand protection and recently spoke to the Northern Alabama ISACA Chapter in Birmingham.
